BT has appointed Internet expert Chris Brickler as marketing vice-president of its global business markets division.
BT global business markets provides telecoms services to multinational corporations. The division forms part of BT Global, which will be renamed BT Worldwide from March 31 and will concentrate on corporate Internet business.
Brickler joins BT from US telecoms giant GTE, where he was assistant vice-president and forged deals with AOL, AT&T and Hewlett-Packard.
Peter McLeod, managing director of global business markets, says: “This latest appointment is a key step in developing the team best equipped to meet the demands of an increasingly technologically advanced market.”
Brickler also joins the transition team which has been set up to manage the global joint venture between BT and AT&T.
Announced last July, the joint venture combines the international assets and operations of each company, including multinational accounts and BT’s network services business Concert, which AT&T has agreed to market in the US.
